in the united states, but around the world. >> four years into a presidency examine it's incomplete? the president is asking people just to be patient with him? look, charlie, the kind of recession we had, we should be bouncing out of it, creating jobs. we're not creating jobs at near the pace we could. >> shep: before today's back and forth, our latest fox news poll showed governor romney and congressman paul ryan leading the president and vice president by two points when it comes to the economy. of course, that is a statistical tie. let's get things started with team fox coverage. carl cameron, campaign guy, live in vermont with governor romney. and ed henry live here. obama campaign staffers are saying the incomplete comment isn't really anything new at all. >> that's because you're right. he has said this before, when interviewers asked him. what they're not mentioning is that after his first year in office, oprah winfrey asked him this question and at that time, the president did not say incomplete. he said he deserved a b plus and said if he passed health care reform valley,
that open new plants and train new workers right here in the united states of america we can reward those companies that build right here and double their exports. we can create 1 million new manufacturing jobs in the next four years. you can make that happen. >> i want to create a future where everyone who wants a job can find a job. where no senior figures for their security of their retirement and every parent knows that their child will get an education that leads to a good job and a bright horizon. and unlike the president, i have a plan to create 12 million new jobs. host: has either campaign in specific on how they plan to create 1 million new jobs? politics is not my area, but from what i have followed i have not seen at all specifically this is going to happen. its romney's plan, one of five. is to reduce the deficit. but it is not clear how it leads to more jobs in a direct way. obviously, overall, a strong quake -- stronger economy and reduced debt leads to a better economic environment. but as you cut contractors, teachers, whatever -- anytime government is cutting spending, c
barack obama president of the united states of america. >> this is america's choice. >>> we'd like to welcome our viewers in the united states and around the world to this, the democratic national convention in charlotte, north carolina. everyone here is waiting to hear what bill clinton will say about president obama tonight as well as his own time in the white house. but another speech tonight could make or break the democrats' hope for keeping control of the united states senate. elizabeth warren is challenging republican senator scott brown in massachusetts. coming up in this hour, we'll hear praise of bill clinton from someone you might not expect. >> coming from the republicans, vice presidential candidate paul ryan sat down with cnn's piers morgan to compare the clinton and obama presidencies. the two presidents have not always been close, obviously. our chief national correspondent john king covered the clinton white house for us. >> these two presidents, the former president and president obama are more than at peace now. you may say both men share a little bit of numbers
privilege as far as being a citizen of the united states to vote and be part of the process. that is all i have to say. host: frank newport, it sounded like from the comments last night by mitt romney that they were really focusing on from here on out approaching voters who had voted for obama in 2008 and looking to lure them to the romney campaign. is there any way that gallup will be checking that attempt? guest: absolutely straight -- absolutely. we track daily. for a republican to win, they have to pull back in some of those voters. if the same scenario happens this year that unfolded in 2008, obama is going to win again. republicans have two goals -- one is to activate the core republican voters and get them to turn out, which is easier for republicans and democrats, because republicans are more likely to vote. they have characteristics like age and education that make them more likely to vote. the second task is to pull down at 7% margin that obama had over mccain, so they have to come in to become a convert some of those people who went for obama to go to romney, or they were going
the region the united states shut many diplomatic facilities because friday prayers often fueled mob rage. some of the ugliest violence, thou though, is in pakistan. in peshawar, protesters set fire to two movie theaters. joining us live from islamabad with more, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, carol. a national holiday, a day to show your love for the approvest muhammad. it turned out to be a day where many pakistanis showed their anger against america, demonstrations in every major city in pakistan and sometimes it got very violent. one news van driver in the city of peshawar shot and killed. here in the capital of islamabad, protests are dying down. here is what it looked like earlier today. friday prayers have just concluded. what we're seeing are some of the largest and most intense protests yet here in pakistan. now what you see over there are shipping containers. police are using them to block off the path to the diplomatic enclave. that's where the foreign embassies are, u.s. embassy, french embassy. now what you seem to have here is some people urging protesters to rush
safely to us. i can never lose hope. >> please help me get home. 33 years of service to the united states deserves something. >> what gives you hope when you look at that video and see how he looks? >> i know when he looks determined, and he looked very determined to make it home safe and sound. >> her husband has missed walking one of his daughters down the aisle. another daughter's wedding is in february. >> his closet is still full of his clothes and i know it won't fit him anymore. and i haven't even touched his dresser. every morning i'm reminded that the nightmare continues. >> if he is able to see this what do you want the say directly to him? >> we will never, ever, ever stop looking for you. i miss you every day. love you. >> reporter: the u.s. has offered no new information about where levinson is and who's holding him. i spoke to a source with knowledge of the investigation who says "there is every reason to believe that levinson is alive and well." >>> police have found the body of a retired firefighter in nebraska. charlie dowd was traveling to visit family by amtrak when he
in the last years of military rule, united states sanctions were blamed for all the economic ills of burma. not just the economic ills but other ills as well, and there is great eagerness for these sanctions to be removed. on my part i do not think we need to cling on to sanctions unnecessarily, because i want our people to be responsible for their own destiny and not to depend too much on external props. we will need external help, we will need the help of our friends abroad, from all over the world, but in the end we have to build our own democracy for ourselves. and we would like u.s.-burma relations to be founded firmly on the recognition of the need for our own people to be accountable for their own destiny. we need the kind of help that has been given to us by the united states historically in the fields of education and health and the fields of humanitarian aid. our education system is in a shambles. many of our people are barely educated. 15% of our children do not go to school at all, and of the rest hardly 20% make it through high school. so burma's educational system is in dire
between the united states and iran. americans repeatedly said that the iranian government must change, and -- change behavior. >> translator: sure, but after all, what does that mean. can one country based on their own sole opinion decide and establish a redline for another country and then offer attacks. we have never threatenned them. >> you said you wanted to wipe them from the face of the earth. >> translator: let me explain, we think occupation and war-like behavior and terrorism should be done away with. the killing of women and children should be done away with. the bombardment of houses on people's heads in their own countries should be done away with. have they done anything like this in the last 65 years? no they event. we say to do away with these things. and we have also suggested the solution. we said that the solution is that the palestinian people should decide in a free election for their own country for their own land. >> the last time i had a conversation with you, here, a year ago were after the conversation, you talked in a reasonable way in part about things, and
the attack on the united states embassy. >> i know there are some who ask why don't we just ban such a video. and the answer is enshrined in our laws. our constitutio protects the right to practice f spee. cchaplre going to call me awful things every day. and i will always defend their right to do so. and we must agree, there is no ol.ech that justifiesdl >> in the last couple of weeks, he pointed out those are probably not the result of a video and were coordinated. he also delivered in his remarks a stern warning to iran ove its nuclearmbition. >> let me b clear. suroipmacy and we i believe there is still time and space to do so. but that time is not unlimited. we respect the right of nations to access peaceful nuclear power. but one of the purposes of the rness that power for peace.at we make no mistake, a nuclear-armed iran is not a challge that can be contained. it would threaten elimination of israel, th security of gulf nations, and the stability of the glol economy. >> the white house came under so f for nchin a face to face meetings with foreign leaders here in new york during the u
if this is going to silence his partisan critic in the united states senate who would like to keep control of the united states senate? i don't think so. >> will it even silence republicans? because some have said that no matter what romney releases, that this is not going to end. >> you know, i think that this whole tax release thing is basically a media invention, a partisan invention. he had released two years. now he's released three years. i don't think the public is interested. gallup yesterday released a poll that was really stunning, that the u.s. trust of the media is at an all-time low. 60% of americans have little to no trust in the media, particularly now that we're going into the election season, because the media -- we're chasing these silly stories like the tax returns or the hidden videos and we're not getting to the meat and the substance of the different candidates, of mitt romney and president obama, their policies, whether they're successful or not, and what that means for the future of this country. we're focusing on the wrong things. >> all right, well, let's get back
including united states. i think there is a strong platform talking about the relationship. >> would you agree it's fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak? and tonight is no different? >> sorry? what? >> i say it's always fun to hear the first lady of the united states speak. and tonight is no different. fun to hear from whether mrs. bush or mrs. obama. it's fun for everybody. >> absolutely. because you get to hear the personal stuff. you get to go inside of the white house and go up to the second floor of the white house where the family lives and learn a little bit more about the family. i think it's great having three daughters they do everything possible to make sure their daughters have a live of their own. so it's a fabulous speech. she hit a home run. we ran up the score on this one. and we still have tomorrow and thursday to go. so it's been a great convention so far. >> congressman, thank you sir. >> thank you very much. >> and coming up utah congressman and republican jason chaffin. why is he here tonight? well, he is hear to tell you next the g.o.p. possibly mad
, it is at the united states and the so-called t-5 plus 1, a group of counselries meeting with negotiation with iran over the last several years. you know, i think president obama has been clear what his red line is. his is iran will not acquire a nuclear weapon. if they make a move in that direction, the u.s. will use whatever options necessary. israel has a different red line. they try to nudge the negotiators and the other international parties. >> shannon: you mentioned the president and his red line. he has taken criticism this week from the g.o.p. official nominee, mitt romney. let's tick a listen at what he had to say this week. >> every american was relieved the day president obama gave the order and seal team 6 took out bin laden. on another front, every american is less secure today because he has failed to slow iran's nuclear threat. >> doctor, he did praise him for taking out bin laden but said that the president has failed when it comes to this particular issue of the nuclear threat. we are also getting news that iran has signed a deal with north korea to share laboratories and technolo
washington from inside? well -- >> he's the president of the united states. who else is going to change washington. people look to him for leadership. that's the criticism. >> the american people are going to change washington. that's what he has always said throughout this campaign and the previous campaign. you know what we've proved it. it's the only reason we cut taxes for the middle class, the only reason we were able to reform the health care system or put wall street protections in place. you know, if we hadn't mobilized the american people we wouldn't be able to cut payroll taxes. that is the only way you can change and affect change in washington. >> does he sound -- >> particularly -- >> does he sound like he's giving up on moving past the gridlock, getting his legislation through congress? doesn't he have to lead the way if we're going to have immigration reform, have tax reform, if big things are going to happen, the way as you would argue he did with health reform? >> andrea you know washington well and understand there are pretty tough entrenched interests in the house rep
opposition. overseas president obama restored the reputation of the united states within the community. dialling a and collaboration are once again possible with the return of spirit and trust and good will to our foreign policy. of course, there remains much to do. communities across america and countries around the world, life is too hard for too many people. we see their struggle and also our hearts go out to them. in the coming years our hands must continue to reach out to them. after all that remains to be done and at home and abroad, the evidence is overwhelming. president obama is a leader for america and we faison slaught of some of the most complicated and international challenges to confront any u.s. president in modern times. it is up to all of us to make sure that the american people understand exactly what is at stake. and at risk in this election. with president obama in oval office we can make good progress towards becoming a fairer, stronger, more prosperous america. and a nation adjusted to changing and challenging times, hold it true to unchanging principles. a leader
're the first lady of the united states, you have a bevy of dresses designed for you, and that is no different for ann romney, but that plays into the narrative, so that's why you see the focus on it. it's a down time in the economy, and it is an attempt, again, to suggest that the romneys are out of touch with middle class americans, which that will be up to the american people to decide, but i think that story plays into that narrative. >> i want to button this up with something else we see so prevalently in this day and age is digital media. the number of tweets that were rolling in per minute when it came to michelle obama. 28,000 tweets per minute while she was speaking. she's not even the candidate. look how it compared to the left. mitt romney's measurement was only 14,000 tweets per minute. but let's finish it this way by saying, as you said, she's not running. she may have an effect but she's not running. important to note that. >> and she's also the first lady of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by
of the united states, and she's been in a very prominent role for five years now, so let's -- you know, i think balance it by the reality that she's not a world leader yet. >> hoover, you're great. thank you. >> thanks. have fun down there. >> all right, so cnn's prime time coverage of the national convention will kick off tonight with wolf blitzer and anderson cooper and during the 10:00 hour, bill clinton is going to address the delegates and a lot of people have been waiting on this speech. at midnight, piers morgan is going to wrap up the first night of the democratic national convention and it will be terrific from top to bottom. but i had already gone through menopause. these symptoms may be nothing... but they could be early warning signs of a gynecologic cancer, such as cervical, ovarian, or uterine cancer. feeling bloated for no reason. that's what i remember. seeing my doctor probably saved my life. warning signs are not the same for everyone. if you think something's wrong... see your doctor. ask about gynecologic cancer. and get the inside knowledge. exclusive to the military, and c

? >> the united states military says most joint operations with the americans and afghan soldiers are going to be suspended until further notice. and mika, this is horrifying when you look at the fact that u.s. policy makers have been justifying continuing this war in afghanistan based on this -- this -- this lie that we're going to be able to train them and help these people who are shooting and killing our troops, help them run the country. >> the longest war and for the longest time no one who is in charge or who knows about these issues can tell us what winning means. the move comes amid an alarming string of insider attacks. the latest on sunday that left four american soldiers dead. yesterday, nato announced it was also scaling back joint operations with afghan security forces. the joint combat patrols are seen as a critical part of the u.s. plan to withdrawal from afghanistan by the end of 2014. and just a few hours ago, in the capital of kabul, nine people were killed when a suicide bomb rammed a car packed with explosives into to a mini bus believed to be carrying foreign workers.
challenge the united states faces is shaping iran's choices in the world. that's not going to come from sanctions. it's not going to come from bombing them. it's showing that you can sculpt the international system. part of that means moving russia, moving china. with russia what you have is a resurgent national, almost in their own terms a reaganesque moment where they've decided to use syria and some of these other points in the world to show their own people for domestic reasons that they can stand tough against the united states. that's a problem for us. >> you know, roger, when you say romney sort of stumbled into them, you know, maybe they're not the number one geopolitical threat to the united states but they're a geopolitical rival. >> they're a big rival. >> they're a rival, partner, adversary. >> everything. >> in a weird way we got them in the wto. that's a partnership. >> exactly. >> they're basically facing us down in every major foreign policy. >> the reality of foreign policy is you do not have a single issue drives with a particular country. there are a multitude of issu

am honored to accept your nomination for president of the united states. wait. this is not my speech! prompter guy can we pull up my speech, please? this is awkward. >> you see this platform is a clear choice. between economic pathways forward or back, inclusion or exclusion, grow together as a nation or be a country of savage disparity that's favor the fortunate few. over the greatest driving force of any economy. a large and robust middle class. >> this nation has been through hard times. but those hard times have hardened our resolve. i'm ready to do the difficult work for a second. i want to do that work with barack obama and not a tea party i'd hola log. we can move america forward but we can only do it together. >> republicans tell us that in the most prosperus among us do even better that somehow, the rest of us will, too. folks... we've heard that before. first they called it trickle down. they called it fly side. now it's romney ryan or is it ryan romney. either way, it's been tested. it failed. the economy failed. middle class paid the price, mitt romney just doesn't get it
. and then the real world intervene. and what happens has upended the political campaign here in the united states. and i think it's very likely that soon here you'll see mitt romney come out and layout in his own terms what he would do on a foreign policy front. >> you frng we'll get a major foreign policied a yen today? >> very soon. he he left to his aides in the "new york times" to flush out what he would do, how he would handle syria, how he would draw a red line with iran. what he would do with egypt. but now it will be time for the principal himself to make these comments. >> john mccain is on the stump for romney in ohio come monday. he was pressed on this issue yesterday. take a listen. >> i have recommended to governor romney that he gives a foreign policy speech that talks about not only the middle east, but in the world. >> and we just heard from glenn he expects that address will come. senator mccain suggesting that it come soon. what does he need to say in that address? >> well, and if glenn says it's going to happen, i trust it. glenn is the expert here. whether he give as big addre

not authorize the fast and furious operation that allowed 2000 weapons from the united states, mexico, and they were in the drug trafficking hands. i think that 200 mexicans might have died and also american agent brian terry. there is a report that 14 agents were responsible for the operation. shouldn't attorney general eric holder. he should have known about that and if he didn't, should you fire him? >> first of all, i think it's important for us to understand that the fast and furious program was a field initiated program begun under the previous administration. when eric holder found out about it, he discontinued it. but i will will tell you that eric holder has my complete confidence because he has shown himself to be willing to hold accountable those who took these actions. >> so this notion that the idea that it started previous administration and as jake tapper points out in a piece this morning that no it didn't start under the actual gun walking did but not the fast and the fearous actual program. >> nine months into the obama administration. fast and furious is as a progra

properly appreciated the gravity of the house crisis in the united states, and putting -- fixing that in a way that people could either try to save their homes, refinance, even if their home value is underwater, but they had equity in it. so i'd say this more as preemptive, and since congress is so unpopular, doesn't hurt to blame them. >> and here's the thing with housing, lynn, not to get off on a tangent, but one of the things that's rarely addressed is a lot of the folks who desperately need to refinance their homes, their credit has taken such -- it's been battered so badly during the crisis, they don't qualify for the refi. >> well, and i'll do this quickly. that's my point. if you talk about why people might hone in on this issue and why obama's focusing on this, before the debate, where it is likely a reasonable thing to guess that it might come up, is that he realizes that this is a vulnerable area, achilles heel, and now trying to shift the blame ahead of time to congress. i say this is a little bit of setting the stage for obama vulnerability that people can relate to.
